2018 greater Chicago Jewish Festival

On Sunday, June 10, 2018, members of the Department of Illinois Jewish War Veterans manned a booth at the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival, St. Paul Woods, Morton Grove, Illinois.  The objective was to recruit new members for the posts within the department.  That objective was met with some success, in that about 20 prospective members did provide their names and contact information for further communication. The information will be sent to the most appropriate post for followup.

Volunteer members were present from setup at 10AM to cleanup at 5PM. Thanks to members from four of the Department Posts for manning the booth on a cold, rainy, muddy day.
